Rated 5 out of 5 by gandj Excellence in Education
Our daughter is mid-way through 6th grade which is our first year with BJU. She is doing very well academically and truly enjoys the diverse teaching approaches in her various classes. For example, sometimes puppets and short skits offer a refreshing approach to tedious or boring material. People learn concepts in different ways, but BJU teachers as well as the textbooks present the material in a variety of ways which makes learning more complete. We have used other curricula that have been very dry, and it was difficult to gain the understanding necessary to excel in the class. My husband has been a school administrator for years, and he has recommended BJU curriculum to many of our fellow homeschoolers. We are looking forward to our daughter's 7th grade year and years following. Thank you BJU!

Rated 3 out of 5 by cewewee Good, but needs to be updated
The content of these videos are great, but they are not HD. They are a bit grainy and the powerpoint presentations used by the teachers is outdated. We are really enjoying the 6th grade science and heritage studies, though. My son hates English because the lessons take so long to watch. I think it's cool that each lesson revolves around a specific person, time in history, or event, but my son just wants to FINISH school for the day and he hates the detour. I don't require him to watch the English videos anymore, so it has shortened our a school day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mnmjavabean Great educational tool, testing a bit clumsy
My student loves the online lessons but thinks the tests are clumsy to maneuver. The floating "save progress" bar gets in the way. He wishes that the progress would just save till he hits submit. Also, the test directions are sometime vague concerning the possible answers and how they should be formatted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hsmom Ms. Vick makes science fun.
Although this video is a little out of date, Ms. Vick is great at keeping my kids attention. The online science program comes with a digital form of the teachers manual and student textbook. You really only need to buy the activity guide which I would recommend. The quizzes and tests are also online. They are also graded online which you can review, edit, and change how grading is performed by the program. Very easy to use. I do sit through the video with my kids. We have a lot of discussion. I did purchase used the teacher's manual, student textbook, and activity guide. I have not had to use the TM or ST yet since they are digital online. We put the video and text up on our TV to make viewing easier.The biblical integration with Ms. Vick is appropriate. I would recommend this 6th grade science program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cmmom Love it!
My daughter loves this math class. The teacher never gets frustrated, is clear, thorough, and interesting. We tried another online brand, and we were not loving it, so we switched to BJUPress- a GREAT decision!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JLucky Great curriculum for tired moms
This has been a huge help for our homeschool! BJU online has allowed me to continue homeschooling despite some health problems I've been dealing with. I am so thankful for programs like this. It is very comprehensive and we love Mrs. Moon! It is worth every penny!

We have enjoyed using BJU Distance Learning.
The academic excellence is above the rest.
The recordings of the lessons should be updated more frequently though.
Thank you for providing excellent Christian curriculum.
